Why Study English in Canberra

For Culture: Not only will you become fluent if you study English in Canberra with us, but you will also have the opportunity to better understand the history of the city and its fascinating culture. For example, you can join one of the many city tours to get to know the architectural treasures of Canberra, like the National Gallery and The Lodge. Most of the tours are delivered in English, so make sure you take some lessons with us to make the most out of this experience! You can also take a sunlit Sunday stroll along the Old Bus Depot Markets and enjoy a history lesson while visiting the emblematic Australian War Memorial. Enrol in one of our English courses today so you can start understanding and learning this interesting local knowledge!

For Social: Adjusting to life in a new city can be challenging, and having friends to support you can make the process easier. If you are looking to make some friends while practising your English, why not join the Language Exchange - Canberra Meetup? This group intends to gather people who would like to improve their English (among other languages) in a friendly, relaxed and fun environment! You don't have to be a great speaker and you can talk about anything you like, so don’t be shy and take advantage of this opportunity to socialise while putting your English into play! And if you are a sports fan, you should attend the matches of the local teams to get to know people with a similar interest in sports and celebrate the victory of your favourite players. Some of the most popular teams in Canberra are the Canberra Raiders (rugby) and Canberra United (soccer/football).

For Work: Strategically located in one of Australia’s most diverse geographic regions between Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is the major regional service hub for much of Southeast Australia and is connected to fast-growing centres across the Asia Pacific region. Consequently, Canberra offers plenty of professional opportunities for both work and investments, and this is one of the reasons it has been named one of the world’s most liveable cities in the REA Group's “Life In Australia Index” report. There are plenty of international companies with headquarters in the city who are always on the lookout for new employees, like Tower Software, Panther Games, Murrays and Armada Solar. When applying for a position, consider that all these businesses require their employees to speak and understand English at an advanced level, so get in touch with us and start studying right away!
